Frequently Asked Questions
van + veronica™ was specially made with fine, curls and coils in mind. We understand the needs of fine curly and coily hair. These delicate hair textures need products that work with their fine strands in mind, rather than smothering what makes them amazing.

Yes, van + veronica™ hair care products are coconut oil-free. While some consider coconut oil a fantastic moisturizer, others find it makes hair dry, hard, or brittle. Instead of coconut oil, we turn to lightweight, gentle oils (like Argan Oil, Grapeseed Oil, and Apricot Oil) that protect fine curls from damage, provide shine and moisture, without making hair hard or brittle.
Yes! We created our van + veronica™ products specifically for people with protein sensitivities. On its own, protein isn’t necessarily dangerous for your hair, but in excess, protein-rich products can easily cause buildup, leaving your fine curls hard, brittle, and easily broken. Check out our article on protein sensitive hair.
Our protein-free shampoo provides gentle cleansing without harsh proteins. While our conditioner and leave-in both contain keratin protein, keratin is gentle and helps strengthen fine coils without making them brittle. Our flaxseed Styler has a small amount of protein as well to provide structure for fine and delicate curls.
Yes! van + veronica™ haircare products are formulated to protect your fine curls’ sensitive pH balance. Our expert-formulated products use carefully selected and naturally derived ingredients to keep your hair’s pH balance between 4.5 and 5.5. Check out this pH post to learn more about the science behind why all our products are pH balanced.
We do not use parabens in our products. Parabens may offer an easy and inexpensive way to
help products last longer, but research has shown that the damage they cause counteracts any “benefits”. Rather than harsh, damaging preservatives, we use safer alternatives. If you’re
curious to learn more, read our post about what exactly parabens do to otherwise healthy hair.
Our products are fragrance-free, meaning we do not include artificial fragrances or chemicals to mask the natural scent of our products. Did you know that fragrance allergies are actually the second most common skin allergy? It’s true!
van + veronica™ makes products for people with fragrance sensitivities so they can enjoy their hair anytime, anywhere, scent- free.
We offer a glycerin-free styler that moisturizes and defines curls for frizz-free definition. Especially if you live in an area with a high dew point, you likely know the struggle of keeping your curls intact in moist, sticky air. Glycerin invites more water into your hair, increasing the difficulty of maintaining your coils.
Having a rare hair type shouldn’t mean a constant struggle against the climate! With our van + veronica™ glycerin-free Styler, you can enjoy worry-free hair no matter the weather.
We sure do! Our van + veronica™ Styler is made with a unique combination of lightweight oils and flaxseed extract, making it perfect for humid climates. How do we know? Because we’ve tested it in our backyard- humid South Florida. Even in 90% humidity, you can trust this product to protect your curls from the elements while maintaining your natural bounce and volume.
